GROWING VALUES

The construction industry is responsible for almost half of all CO2 emissions. What if we build in wood?

.

Germany’s forests supply the equivalent of 1 m3 of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) every 2 seconds

For all 26 units of Terrace House 700 trees would need to be cut leaving a void in the forest of 140 m x 140 m

Yet, it takes less than 21 minutes to grow back!

While absorbing some 2 000 tonnes of CO2

Let’s value growing materials. Let’s grow new values.
